Longtime Car and Driver editor Eddie Alterman thinks all cars are great, even the awful ones. But some cars, he says, transcend their "car-ness” and have a story to tell. On Car Show!, Alterman tells those stories. Stories of the vital cars — the ones that have changed how we drive and live, whose significance lies outside the scope of horsepower or miles per gallon. Because some cars are more than just a pile of metal, glass, and rubber. Some cars are rolling anthropology. Launches May 18, with new episodes on Wednesdays.

    In round one of our tournament to determine the car of the year, Eddie is joined by Matt Farah to debate the various merits of the Corvette Z06, Nissan Z, Toyota Corolla GR, and Porsche 718. What does the future hold for this coveted but shrinking segment? Plus, Matt tells us about the saga of ordering his frozen-berry metallic Boxster, and why it might be better than a 911. Eddie then takes us for a spin in the winner.

    The Jeep Wrangler: Saving Democracy, Making Bank

    The Jeep Wrangler: Saving Democracy, Making Bank

    The Jeep was created in the 1940s to serve the battlefields of World War II. It glided into France on D-Day, it slogged through the Bulge. Today you can find Jeeps cruising the Jersey shore, or parked in someone’s garage next to a Mercedes-Benz S-class. But it still remains true to its military roots. It’s still—defiantly—the most American vehicle of all time. So why does this anachronistic, out-of-step vehicle still sell so well? The answer may surprise you.

GTI Episode Has One HUGE Omission

You keep comparing the GTI to the GTO without ever referencing the iconic 1984 GTI commerical that covers the Beach Boys "Little GTO" in German. How did you whiff on this?

Pretentious

For starters putting a podcast behind a paywall goes against the idea of a podcasts but that’s a larger philosophical debate.

The host’s opinions are just kinda pretentious and uninteresting. He has a voice for the written word. Even when he’s excited about something his tone doesn’t really change. I find myself wandering off mentally where as other podcast are able to keep my attention.
